Metatarsus adductus is a structural foot deformity that is rarely associated with hallux valgus deformity. Surgical treatment is challenging, and multiple osteotomies are often required to correct both deformities. However, surgical impact must be considered, especially in elderly patients. We present a clinical case of a 76-year-old woman affected by hallux valgus and metatarsus adductus deformity. Multiple distal oblique osteotomies were performed on the first, second, and third metatarsals, coupled with Z-lengthening of the extensor digitorum longus tendons.
